Match Facts & Stats
Pool pushed Albion right to the end earlier in the season when the home side scraped a 2-1 win. Ishmael Miller opened the scoring with a neat turn and finish but Scott Vernon pulled the game level in the first half with his own neat finish. Mike Pike in black didn`t help and James Morrison won the game with a great strike from the edge of the area.
WBA last visited Bloomers in 1993 in league one, Pool ran out 2-1 winners that day.
